In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Jason Statham revealed he will be filming “Viva La Madness” in London, UK next year.
“J.J. Connolly’s written a great book called Viva La Madness, and we’re taking that book and doing something great with it,” Statham said. “He’s such a talented writer… the book was incredible. I loved Layer Cake and this is [if anything] better.
“The chance to work with someone of that calibre, do something back home, it’s the most exciting thing on my plate… We’re doing it next year, and it’s full steam ahead. We’re putting all the finance together, and we’re off and racing.”
The film “Layer Cake” was released in 2004 and starred Daniel Craig. “Viva La Madness” is the follow-up film with Jason Statham taking over Daniel Craig’s role as the anonymous hero who is pulled back into the drug game before he can escape to a sunny retirement.
